This post is part of my 30 days of geek challenge.
I’ve been heavily into computers for almost a decade, it was never a case of waking up one day and deciding that I want to be an ubergeek, but rather it’s something that just grew on me more and more.
I started using computers around the age of 10 and by 12 was heavily into them, hacking on simple apps and doing my first Linux experimentation. I would spend hours just breaking the system and messing around digging into options and settings I didn’t understand just for the fun of it to see what happens.
It’s very much a personal interest/challenge that’s driven me, the career side of it was just a natural progression once I left school, but was never the intention of learning what I know.
